Other SUVs to Consider

While the Veracruz is a good value, the Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia offers more comfortable seating and better performance at all, always can stomach the high prices.

If sticking to your budget is more important to you, take a look at the Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot. Both have three rows of seats. The Highlander uses less fuel much better than the Veracruz and has a lower starting price. The pilot has three sets of LATCH Connect in the second row - a big plus for families with three children in car seats - and costs about the same as that of Vera Cruz. However, neither the Highlander or the driver matches the list guaranteed to Veracruz along with standard features and interior luxury.

Acceleration and Power

The Veracruz comes with a 3.8-liter V6 shared with the Azera sedan. The engine delivers 260 horsepower and 257 lb-ft of torque and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, equipped with a manual shift mode.

Even if the engine has a lot of horses, some of the test driver to find it slow due to the heavy weight of Veracruz. According to the EPA, the Veracruz FWD 17/22 mpg achieve city / highway, while the AWD model for 16/21. Although these data seem to be bad when you compare them to a midsize SUV that seats seven, are actually pretty typical. Only the Toyota Highlander seats seven and gets significantly better fuel economy.
